+### Rules of 3
+
+by [[David Demaree]]
+
+* Refactoring vs prefactoring
+* They're doing an i18n project
+* Not sure how to approach well
+* DRY vs too much abstraction -- DRY is just a guideline! (Repeating can be okay)
+* Don't design for what you think you're going to need (YAGNI)
+* The Rule of 3: 3 repetitions => maybe refactor
+* Organizing code can be a blessingGi
+* Don't make assumptions

+* UTC
+* Date formats...
+* `require 'time'` and you get more methods
+* RFCs
+* @avdi says use `iso8601`: human readable, machine sortable
+* Gotchas: DST, localized times, leap seconds, different parsing in Ruby 1.8 / 1.9 (maybe `strptime`)
+* Don't scheudle cronjobs between 1 and 3 am -- time may not exist

+### Scalable Configuration
+
+by [[Tim Galeckas]]
+
+* They've had probs with configuration (staging vs prod, etc)
+* He made a gem called `hierarchical_config`
+* Scalable is:
+ * In source control...
+ * Should be seen outside of where it's used
+ * Not changeable while running
+ * Declarative (they use YAML)
